london itinerary ..your inut please

we are staying near Victoria Station, the Park Plaza Victoria.

We have two full days to tour.

Please help us to arrange the order, the sequence, of these sites...and add any others that we may have left out....we will have a travelcard so transportation costs should not matter...here goes...

buckingham palace (the changing of the guards), the london eye, the tower of london, piccadily circus, westminster abbey, perhaps (if time and if recommended) churchill museum, the national gallery, tate modern,...can we also fit in the british museum, st paul's cathedal?

of course we know we are rushing so if there are sites we should omit for the sake of time, please share.

thank you..we leave this friday...

hi. you may wnat to buy a good guide book and map to learn where things are located so that you can organize your tour. museums can take at least an hour or more to just get an idea of what there is to see. I would pick one art exhibit to see,I like the national gallery. if you like modern art,then Tate may work for you. the british museum is a vast area to cover in just a couple of hours. . you can't see everything in two days,so grouping things together that are in the same area will help. pick three or four things you don't want to miss and see those. save the rest for your next trip.

With no Circle line this weekend and no service on the District line east of Embankment (for your purposes), you'll have to be very canny in your travels. The Trooping the Colour on Saturday will put a substantial crimp in buses from Victoria, so you'll have to work around that; no Jubilee line service between Stanmore and Waterloo will also slow things down.

To get to the Tower, take the Victoria line to Oxford Circus then the Central line to Chancery Lane. Alight there and from High Holborn take the number 25 bus towards Ilford and alight at the Tower. You may either take the RV1 from the Minories to the Tate Modern or the 15 back towards Paddington or Trafalgar Square from Tower Hill (the road) - the 15 calls at St Paul's if you want to have a look - from there you may walk across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern as well.

The Cabinet War Rooms aren't far from Westminster, but on Saturday the place may be heaving after the Trooping the Colour. You'll have to make your way to the Abbey on Saturday as I think it's closed on Sunday except for worship, but again that whole area is going to be tricky to get to and from because of the lack of Underground and parade.

On Sunday take either the 211 or 507 from Victoria for the Eye.

It's good that you won't have to worry about jet-lag. That helps. It quite a lot for two days. Keep in mind that you should plan to do what you want to see - not what you think you should see. For example, if you aren't into modern art, skip the Tate Modern. I've managed to skip it for the past ten + years. : ) Same goes for Changing of the Guard. A lot of people think they have to see it, then are disappointed because it can be pretty underwhelming and take up a lot of your touring day.

Westminster Abbey, London Eye, Churchill Museum and Buckingham Palace are close together, and Trafalgar Square isn't far (National Gallery.)

Tower of London isn't too far from St. Paul's Cathedral and Tate Modern. British Museum could possibly be combined with these. But you will spend a good 2-3 hours at Tower of London.

Realistically, maybe Day 1, start off at Tower of London, then St. Paul's in the afternoon. Then maybe a little time at Tate Modern or British Museum.

Day 2 - Buckingham Palace (C og G), Cabinet War Rooms, Westminster Abbey (open late on Wednesdays). You may have time for National Gallery - at least a peek. London Eye, then take a bus to Piccadilly Circus (this is something you can do after the sites have closed for the day. It's better seen after dark anyway to get the most from the lights.
